It makes us sick at heart to see lit
tle boys drinking coca cola and smok
ing clgaretts. It is the first step to
wards the drink habit. In my opinion,
and leads to ruin If persisted In. Our
people ought to read "Josla Allen's
Wife" and learn that what Is right
for "Thomas Jefferson' 'is r'ght for
"Tirza-Ann". Society is all wrong
which allows boys and young men to
indulge in impure acts and would con
demn the same in the girls. Boys
ought to be kept from temptation and
taught to be Pure and clean. The
boys themselves would condemn any
unclean practice in their sisters. The
young women who receive attention
from young men who are known to be
vile, ought to know that they are look
ed upon with suspicion by right think
ing people. "Sow a thought and you
reap an net. Sow an act and you reap
a character. Sow a character and
you reap a destiny."
Even If this life was the last of us
It would be best to live pure and
clean, but what about eternity. The
proacher yesterday said it would be
everlasting life or everlasting despair.
"Eternity! where? Eternity where?
- In Heaven or despair
Eternity where? Oh! Eternity where?
With loved ones In glory or
With demons In despair.

War in Jersey.
The furor being raised over the an
ti-alien Jap bill in California is a
Hinnll thing beside the excitement cre
ated by hostilities over in Jersey
Sunday when the Davis family of dark
persuasion became entangled with an
other one of the same race and later
on, with the police department of the
city. Hostilities were begun early in
tha day when Lidle Davis violated the
peace treaties existing between her
and one Jim Barksdale and made an
assault, linguistic as well as physical,
upon Jim. The noise and up-roar of
this conflict became so thunderous as
to attract the attention of others,
Chief Bagwell and "Uncle Johnny"
Langston, among them. Upon the ar
rival of the police department and
the asault which they nade upon the
general enemy, the rest of the Davis
family got into the row. Arrests were
made by the policemen and a start
was made for the guard house. Lldle
Davis proved a stubborn captive and
Po'iceman Langston urged her more
thnn gently to make some haste. She
objected and refused to go further.
Hostilities began again. Emma, Da
vis, the mother of Lidle, began an at
tack upon Hie policemen and threw a
brick at the chief, but missed him.
Clarence Davis, who had been in the
tow of the chief, brore loose and weilt
for a brick also. Just as he raised It
?to throw, however, Chief Bagwell
"klvveretV him with his pistol and
Policeman I*anfeston interfered to pre
vent a more seriou. tragedy. The ap
pearance of the pistol had a cooling
effect on the "whole crowd and they
were easily brought on to town. They
wore tried in Mayor's court this morn
ing and Emma Davis was given a sen
tence of $35 or 50 days, Lldle Davis
was given $100 or sixty days and
Clarence Davis $100 or sixty days.
Clarence Barksdale, who evidently
was not at fault, was liberated soon
after his arrest. According to the
articles of capitulation, all of them
will take the days.
